Colin wanted a short ride and Paul was recovering from a chest infection so Blossoms cafe at Flittons was our destination. We cycled up Demesne Road, through Mellows Park and then through the Roundshaw estate, bedecked with Christmas decorations, and stopped on the site of Croydon Airport for the view through the clouds and grey sky.
Then on past John Fisher and Laleham Lea schools and a short detour to cross Woodcote Green and turn left to Flittons by Wallington High Girls School.

We left the tea shop to cycle through the smallholdings stopping briefly to take note of the new Naturally Thinking on Telegraph Track (lavender and other oils organically grown). Some of us are looking forward to trying their products in the future. Soon we were saying goodbye and going our separate ways home though Paul, Maggie and Sharon met the only traffic jam of the day caused by the Wallington High Street road works.
